Default Checking diskspace on mounted partitions

Running :
Client : FlashFXP 2.0 RC2 (build 867)
OS : Windows 2000

Partition layout :
Main disk : 20 GByte
Secondary disk : 10 GByte

C:\> 20 GByte
C:\FTP> 10 GByte

If I enter c:\ftp in FlashFXP it still states avail space as the space in c:\, and not the mounted partition in c:\ftp

It is not a major problem, but it is still a bug.

this is a problem with windows 2000, not flashfxp. if you check in windows explorer, a folder mounted to another drive does not show the correct free space on that mount, but on the drive its mounted to. There is nothing we can do about this

There is no workaround to checking diskspace ?

If i check it in cmd.exe the available bytes is displayed correctly, and I can still right click the mountpoint and choose properties twice to see the correctly displayed disk-free amount.

Just because Microsoft doesn't implement the feature correctly in their explorer doesn't mean it can't be done

Hope you had a good weekend

We have explored many different ideas to make this possible but have been unable to come up with a viable solution.

If someone knows how this can be achieved we will do our best to support it.
